JACK BUSH "YELLOW MARK" SERIGRAPH, 1971
Jack Bush (1909-1977) is Canada's most successful abstract artist of the 20th century.
Bush was a graduate of OCAD (Ontario College of Art & Design) and a key member of Painters Eleven.
Unlike his contemporaries, Bush would achieve an unrivaled level of success in New York and beyond after being praised and guided by esteemed critic Clement Greenberg.
As a result of their interactions, Bush would become friendly with several of the artists affiliated with the color-field movement including Jules Olitski and Kenneth Noland. While many of his contemporaries explored the creative possibilities of printmaking, Bush only realized a small number of prints during his lifetime.
This work "Yellow Mark", dating from 1971, is evocative of Bush's style from the early 1970's. (Click here to see another print from the same series)
Note the nuanced grey background. Bush devised this layered technique, first realized on large-scale canvases, with sponges. Several similar works from this era were recently on display at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection as part of the exhibit "Jack Bush: In the Studio" Click here to learn more about this period from the curator of the exhibition.
